TATLARIN

 tatlarin underground city   tatlarinkoy turkey tatlarin church
This underground city is at the fortress area of the Tatlarin village which is situat­ed 10 kilometers to the north of Acıgöl, and is accessable since 1991. Besides the edifices built in volcanic tuff, we come across quite a number of churches in the fortress area of Acıgöl.

Land erosion has devastated most of these churches whose abundance indi­cate that Acıgöl has been an important re­ligious center. Because the original portal of the underground city has been ruined, we enter Tatlarin through the rooms at the western side.

Only two floors of the Tatlarin under­ground city are accessible today. The huge size of the rooms and the store­rooms show that this place has also been used for military purposes.
